A curriculum, as the state requires according current to standards - does not exist. Teachers completely lack camaraderie and often fight publicly... in of the children. Teachers are not up to date in terms of teaching practices and seem to be stuck in the 1970's or before. The school is in the hands of the pastor, and the buildings and grounds supervisor; none of them are trained educators and both lack college degrees of any consequence. The local public schools are a far better, and cheaper, option.
I love OLGC, it's a great school, my son is in Kinder and is already reading. I am very pleased with the new principal, I think he is doing an outstanding job in reorganizing the school. I would recommend OLGC to any parent interested in enrolling their children into a good catholic school. Religion is one of my son's favorite subjects, always comes home telling me the new things he learn about our Catholic Faith.
OLGC is the place to be. The warm and loving environment helps all the students succeed. Both of my children have done well academically and socially thanks to the hard working faculty. I will never regret the financial sacrafice it took to send my children to OLGC!
This is one great school. I am so grateful to have found this place for my kids. This is the warming and most loving school I have ever seen. The teachers are excellent and the new principal, Mr. Swanson, is a tremendous school leader!!! I highly recommend this place to any family in the Aurora, Montgomery and Oswego area.
It is the best! Teaches respect and dignity for others as well for self!
This school is truly a very special place. My daughter is in the preschool but we have gotten to know many of the families with older children. The school is like one big family. The education is superior and the whole environment is nurturing, caring -- they live Catholic Christian values. We intend to send our children here through 8th grade!
OLOGC is a wonderful place to send your children. My son is in preschool and the dedication by both the staff and the parents, outshines what I have ever experienced in public school. Parents are asked to volunteer 20 hours a year to help support the on going traditions of OLOGC. This helps parents get involved with the education of there children and it shows in our children's faces. As they say,'you pay for what you get.' It's proof in the education that is provided by OLOGC. God bless.
